Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “US Army mandates active duty soldiers must be vaccinated by December”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The US Army on Tuesday announced all active soldiers must be vaccinated for the coronavirus by Dec. 15.

The development comes after the Pentagon last month said all US military members would be required to receive the COVID-19 jab following the Food and Drug Administration full approval of the Pfizer vaccine.

“This is quite literally a matter of life and death for our Soldiers, their families and the communities in which we live,” Lt. Gen. R. Scott Dingle, the U.S. Army Surgeon General, said in a statement.

“Case counts and deaths continue to be concerning as the Delta variant spreads, which makes protecting the force through mandatory vaccination a health and readiness priority for the total Army,” said Dingle.

But soldiers without an approved exemption who refuse to get vaccinated can face punishment, including relief of duties or discharge, according to the Army.
